Metallica debut new song
2014-03-17 by jordan. CONTRIBUTOR | 88 Comments
As promised earlier this week, Metallica debuted a new song live on the beginning of their South American tour. As titled by a tweet from the band, 'The Lords of Summer', is expected to be released as part of their forthcoming studio album, which still has an unconfirmed release date.

Metallica fans have waited for more than 5 years for new material with various band members confirming that work had begun on their 10th studio LP.

While no full recording has been released as of yet, various 15 second clips have emerged online. It is hoped the full recording will surface soon.

Is it possible that Metallica somehow figures it out after all this time and just blows all of their post And Justice material away with the new album? It seems inconceivable but I guess crazier things
have happened.

That's a pretty big claim considering we've heard a grand total of FOURTEEN SECONDS of this new album

Still, I enjoyed Death Magnetic, so I'm excited.

"That's a pretty big claim considering we've heard a grand total of FOURTEEN SECONDS of this new album."

I don't recall directly commenting on the quality of the material here. I'm just proposing the idea, can Metallica make a really
awesome album again? My guess is probably not but I suppose we'll find out in time.

I certainly don't mean to discern the potential quality of the new album based on that clip.

It needs about 1-2 minutes cut from it as it drags a bit but I'm digging it. It has some nice hooks and the maidenish bridge is really cool. It's got a real ride the lightning vibe to it. I'm guessing the song will change a fair bit or even be cut up and have parts used in other songs like with the new song the debuted before death magnetic. The song has made me psyched for a new metallica album anyway.

Also, the fan chosen setlist for that concert is boring as fuck. I'd like them to play some more obscure songs - metal militia, escape, the house that jack built, fixxxer (their most underrated song by far) etc.

Actually listened to it. Aside from James vocals (which have been suspect for years) it wasn't that bad. I heard some triplet picking, double bass and evern a "FI-YA" in there.

Someone needs to tell Lars that his skullet needs to go however. Only Devin Townsend and the bassist from Battlecross pull that look off well.

that's a shame, plenty of good tracks after Black album. just because they changed styles/genres after that doesn't instantly mean they stopped writing good music.

i like both pre and post Black album.


this sounds underwhelming, but it's only one song.
